Happy Memorial Weekend my lovies.
I hope you all are having a great time. We’ve managed to avoid the rain this weekend, but the temperature readings could be a little higher today. One of my favorite things about late spring is the opening of the roof lounges for the summer season. As a Jamaican, you live for outdoor parties. Living in New York City, rooftop lounges are the closest you get to that. Last Sunday my friend was hosting the opening of STK roof, so I got dressed and ready for a super warm #SundayFunday in meatpacking.
The secret to dressing for a #SundayFunday is what I call DAYTIME GLAM! You want to look dressed up but in an understated kind of way. I love color, beading and embellished stuff for day time. However, say NO to that shiny sequin dress. Sundays are usually a more relaxed day in Manhattan. I’ve been raving about the tie-neck-blouse all season, and this is the perfect opportunity to get in on the trend. This style is absolutely great paired with your favorite distressed jeans and high-heels. I absolutely love destroyed denim shorts, I’ll take them in all lengths, colors and brands, THANK YOU
These shorts are from Urban Outfitters , and it is my go-to place to shop for affordable denim shorts. They have a brand called Urban Renewal that revamps vintage Levi’s into all different styles. They have short ones, boyfriend style, high waisted and low- rise options. Click here to see more options from this brand.
I love the wash of these jeans as well as how perfectly distressed they look. They have that worn look that I love. I hate buying distressed jeans and it looks like someone just got busy with a pair of scissors yesterday. I hate anything UNauthentic!
Buy them! If for no other reason, they make your ASS look A-MA-ZING!
The biggest challenge of hanging out in The Meatpacking District is walking in high heels. That cobblestone paved road is a shoe killer….lol. You have to be particularly careful! Strategically walking on the tips of your toes instead of your heels helps. I did not want to risk getting a nasty tear or jab in the suede of these Giuseppe Zanotti Sandals. They are just TOO PRETTY
Have you ever had something, that because you loved it too much, you almost didn’t want to wear it? I got these last year and this is their second time in the streets…..lol.
Strategically walking on the tips of your toes instead of your heels helps.
To shoot this look, I did the walking in intervals
Walked a little…..
Talked a little ……
Then walked around a little more!
It was really nice out. All the restaurants were buzzing with people and the streets filled with people walking around. We made it all the way up to 83 degrees, so it was a great day to sit out in the sun and sip on some ice cold rose.
The best thing about having brunch at STK Roof is your undisturbed views of the High Line. Good music, great food, fantastic views and great shoes What more could a New York City girl ask for on a Sunday? Oh yea….great company and that was defnitely a CHECK PLUS xoxoSB
